I can't speak for the other titles but our Math Dept. wanted to go
electronic for Mathematical Reviews and ended up going back to the paper
after six months of trying to get it to work. I believe even the American
Math. Society is having problems with transmitting math formulas. If anyone
is doing only electronic for Math. Reviews, I'd like to know what you are doing!
